A3010 restoration

Ok, I have a A3010 that I am looking to restore The previous owner has removed the battery but I'm going to treat that with vinegar and distilled water (did a A3000 before and that worked nicely) The battery seems to have done a good job of leaking looking at the discoloration of the shields It does...

A3000 restoration

Hello from a new old boy I was pretty much a Beeb man originally but decided to try a A3000 off the usual auction site Pretty pleased with it in that the dreaded battery wasnt in too bad shape.

Re: Advice on internal Datacentre 1MHz bus cable installation?

Hello
I have Master with a PiCopro and a datacentre
I haven't mounted the datacentre yet just but wondered if anyone had mounted it so it fixed to the mainboard and not the lid

Looking at fitting an SD adapter to it and Econet at some stage just to fill up the case :)

Pics would be great :)
